After making her highly-anticipated debut at the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, England, Dolly Parton is defending herself against critics who claim she lip-synced throughout her 70-minute set.
A spokesperson for the 68-year-old maintains she was singing live during the festival's closing night, for which she drew around 100,000 concert-goers to the famous Pyramid Stage.
"I've been waitin' a long time for this," Dolly told the crowd. "I'm so glad you came. I can't do a bunch of sad songs, everyone is drunk and high."
While singing some of her top hits, including "9 to 5," "Islands in the Stream" and "Jolene," the country icon wore a bedazzled white suit that showed off her best assets.
Though it was consistently rainy and muddy at the festival, Dolly took it all in stride even penning a song about the dreary weather, with lyrics such as: "Mud, mud, mud, mud. Up to our bums in all this crud."
And despite her pristine white ensemble, the conditions didn't bother her. "I grew up in mud," shares the infamously over-the-top singer.
"My daddy was a farmer, I grew up in East Tennessee and we made our living on a farm, so I thought, 'Well this isn't all that different.' Mud is mud, wherever you are."
During her set, Dolly also surprised fans by bringing former Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora on stage for a duet of "Lay Your Hands On Me."
Earlier in the day, the Grammy winner received a special award for selling over 100 million records worldwide, which came as a surprise to her.
"I've been so busy making records for the past several decades, I didn't realize I had racked up so many sales," she said. "What a great honor to know that I have so many fans that have supported me through the years."
